What a year it’s been! We recently wrapped our Charity of the Year partnership with Mind, and we’re over the moon with what we managed to achieve. The Grain team have been putting their all into various fundraising activities, and thanks to their hard work we managed to raise over £2100! Over the past year we’ve held lots of fundraisers such as our 10K and Half Marathon, our Pub Quiz and a team walk in the Lake District.We could not be more grateful for the endless amount of support we got from staff, friends, family and customers.
But, we’re not resting on our laurels…
Introducing our new Charity of the Year for 2023/24, Feeding Britain!
As a broadband provider, we’re passionate about ensuring everyone has access to essential services, no matter their income level. However, we know that access to affordable broadband alone isn’t enough, as many families and individuals are struggling to put food on the table.
That’s why our staff have chosen to support Feeding Britain. This amazing charity do outstanding work to eliminate hunger and its root causes across the UK, and we’re excited to be able to support their efforts.
“We are thrilled to announce that our charity of the year for 2023/24 is Feeding Britain. Their mission to end hunger and food insecurity in the UK aligns perfectly with our values and we are proud to support this important cause. We look forward to working alongside Feeding Britain to make a positive impact in our local communities and beyond, and we’re all very excited to take part in this year’s fundraising activities!” – Sue Boyd, Head of HR.
Not only will we be using our voice to share the exceptional work that the charity does, but we will also be supporting local Food Banks within our Full Fibre areas. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn for all the fundraising to follow!
